Caramoan Adventure
Posted on: 3rd of September 2009 | Under: Travel Junkie

These past couple of months, raves about the beauty of Caramoan Islands in Camarines Sur have been sprouting the internet, that I mentally took note to add it to one of the places I want to see before I die. It was quickly ticked off my long list when I gladly accepted my friend’s invitation to join them on a trip there last month. It was a decision that I made on a whim, without even having to think twice. Another one of my carefree/happy-go-lucky spasm attacks, where I couldn’t have been more right, because not even a split second of disappointment lingered throughout the entire trip.

Two days and two nights was simply too short a time to be able to see all the islands in the area, but we managed to squeeze several in our agenda, experiencing the best adventure of our lives while at it.

The whole getaway was filled with surprising adventures left and right. From long boat rides, yellow wonderlands, tiresome hikes, motorbike rides, swimming under the rain, to heart-pumping tricycle rides on bumpy tracks of giant potholes. And of course, it was also filled with wonderful sceneries, joyous laughter and happy moments that will surely be etched in our memories forever.

And because I truly believe that pictures speak a thousand words, here are a ton of photos for your viewing pleasure. :)

We survived the two-hour (+) boat ride from Sabang port to Guijalo port with our iPods and endless cam whoring. =P

Finally at Guijalo port, but since it was low tide, we had to be transported to the dock in tiny boats. Here are the boys with Mr. boat man.

Can I be with you everyday?

I want to wake up to the sound of the crashing waves.
I want to walk feeling the sand between my toes.
I want to feel the sea breeze tickle my skin.
l want to lounge around with my book in hand.
I want to spend hours under the sun.
Then at the end of the day,
I want to watch the sun disappear below the horizon.

Ahh… Beach,
Can I be with you everyday?

Getaway Sneak Peek
Posted on: 26th of August 2009 | Under: Travel Junkie

Traveling is something that I find great pleasure in. Something that I tend to crave for every once in a while.

I’m a Filipino, but unfortunately I’m quite a stranger to my homeland. I’ve visited more tourist spots all over the world (USA, Europe, Asia) than in my own country. It’s not that I chose to ignore the many wonderful places in the Philippines, I was generally just too young to choose and control the destinations of my previous travels. Now that I’m older and have my own money to spend (very little of it, might I add! LOL!), I’ve been indulging myself to the beautiful sceneries of the Philippines.

Last Sunday, I came back from a place that re-ignited my love and desire for traveling and getting to know my homeland. It was a five-day getaway that overflowed with adventures, laughter and dozens of  breathtaking backdrops.

Here’s a sneak peek of it:


Travelled to our destination by plane, car, boat and motorcycles.


Majestic beauty was seen, even on board the plane!


Beaches. No rivers, lakes, ponds (or pond supplies), just a whole lot of beaches. :)

A more detailed description will follow soon, I promise.

A Need to Get Away
Posted on: 17th of April 2006 | Under: Travel Junkie

I’ve had to deal with so much stress lately: the last few days of school and family dealings too. All I need right now is to get away Away from everything. Away from everyone.

A trip to a secluded beach would do. Maybe even a couple of days somewhere I’ve never been to. I’m not going to worry about finding a job yet. I know I’m not being pressured by anyone anyway. I will just take my sweet time to get some rest and to have fun.

Road trip, anyone?
